Business owners expect Kutztown Folk Festival provides economic boost

Now, it’s back to the soap-making table.

As laborers individuals fire up another cluster of physique lotion behind Paisley and Firm in midtown Kutztown, the proprietor appears to be again on the years past to the pandemic. “We might gotten to the purpose the place our development was fairly steadily actually growing, yr after yr, for 3 or 4 years to the purpose the place I needed to rent a common supervisor,” stated Joanne Lapic, proprietor of Paisley & Firm.

“It’s now 2015 again and let’s try it again,” Lapic said.

One of the things helping to push businesses like hers into the future is the return of in-person events, like those organized by the Kutztown Folk Festival.

“All the vendors,” Lapic said. “You know, at the end of the day they come across the street. They get something to eat. They want to kill some time. You know, to them it’s a treat.”

A farm-to-table dinner, line dancing, and a mini-version of the festival itself are all on the schedule for the days ahead.

“Everybody’s had to get creative over the last year-and-a-half with the different events and different things that we would normally be doing,” said Rebecca Laincz, co-owner of Firefly Bookstore, “and I think this is a great way to start bringing back the folk festival.”

It may not be the full-blown folk fest many are used to, but it’s a show of support for a community that continues to fight an economic battle.

“It’s been challenging but we’re doing alright,” Laincz said. “The main reason being we have a very supportive community who really believe in supporting the local businesses.”
